Charlie Louvin was the "good" brother, Ira was the one who always got in trouble-throughout his entire life. The book is, by turns, funny, scary, sad, informative, and revealing. From the brother's early days on the farm picking cotton, to the early days of their singing career, to eventual widespread (and well earned) popularity, to Ira's death, this book is hard to put down. And oftentimes you don't always get the real story, but here you have Charlie Louvin's look back at his brother, his family, the brother's career, and their music. It's all laid out and seems to have the ring of truth about it. But even if only half of the stories Charlie tells are even partially true-what a life!
This book is another rags to riches story of the type that I love to read. Ira and Charlie Louvin grew up dirt poor on an Alabama farm
This book is another rags to riches story of the type that I love to read. Ira and Charlie Louvin grew up dirt poor on an Alabama farm. The brothers learned to sing in harmony while toiling away at the family farm performing many tedious chores. Their father was a stern taskmaster and wouldn't hesitate to beat the boys when they slacked off or misbehaved.
Ira Louvin was a full head taller than his younger brother, played the mandolin like Bill Monroe and sang in an impossibly high, tense, quivering tenor. Charlie strummed a guitar, grinned like a vaudevillian and handled the bottom register. But they’re good for the book, which is full of fistfights, road stories and behind-the-scenes looks at fellow travelers: Presley, Hank Williams, Roy Acuff, Johnny Cash, Little Jimmy Dickens and not a few others.
The Louvin Brothers were an American musical duo composed of brothers Ira and Charlie Louvin (Lonnie Loudermilk (April 21, 1924 – June 20, 1965) and Charlie Elzer Loudermilk (July 7, 1927– January 26, 2011). The brothers are cousins to John D. Loudermilk, a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member. The brothers wrote and performed secular country music, as well as fire-and-brimstone gospel music.
Satan Is Real: The Ballad of the Louvin Brothers. by Charlie Louvin and Benjamin Whitmer. Get ready for one of America’s great untold stories: the true saga of the Louvin Brothers, a mid-century Southern gothic Cain and Abel and one of the greatest country duos of all time.
